The Hollywood agent Bill Daly, of Bill Daly Associates, was the manager for Lawrence Welk and the lightweight world boxing champion Carlos Ortiz, among others. Roman Catholic bishop Austin Anthony Vetter was born in Linton. The city serves as a governmental, commercial and business hub forEmmons County. The county seat was originally in the town of Williamsport, which was located in the northern half of the county in Township 135N, Range 76W, Section 15 on the east side of what is today 9th Ave. SE between 62nd St. and 63rd St. SE. In 1885, two years after the county was officially organized, the city of Linton was formed. The first two votes taken during the 1880s and 1890s failed completely. The third resulted in a decision to move the county Seat to the center of the country and create a new town, which eventually become the cityof Linton, which is now the county's county seat. The current county seat is Winona, which has a population of 1,788. The town of Winona is located on the north side of the Bismarck River, about two miles northeast of Hazelton, the state capital of North Dakota. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the Linton Army Ammunition Plant in the early 1900s.


Linton is the primary city name, but also Temvik are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is Linton, North Dakota. Linton is a city in Emmons County, South Dakota. Linton was the result of a political dispute between residents in the northern half of the county and those in the southern half. In 1885, two years after the county was officially organized, the county seat was in the town of Williamsport, which was located in the north. The northern part was more densely settled than the southern part, so this created problems when it came time to vote. Eventually, it was decided to take a vote to see if residents favored dividing the county in two. When the votes were tallied, residents had decided against splitting the county. However this did not end the dispute, and the effort to move the seat of government from Williamsport to Winona continued. The decision to move county seat to the center of the country resulted in a decision to create a new town, which eventually become the city of Linton. As a result of losing the court case, Linton has remained there since the early 20th century. The town of Winona has since become the new county seat of county government. The Hollywood agent Bill Daly, of Bill Daly Associates, was the manager for Lawrence Welk and the lightweight world boxing champion Carlos Ortiz, among others.
